E-Fuel 100 – Refuel Your Car From Leftover Beer

In today world when there is a shortage of energy and greater danger to the environment from hydrocarbons, there is a company named Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. that has found a new way to make fuel. They have developed a procedure to make high quality ethanol fuel from the leftover beer yeast at its brewery.


This is by any doubt a great method to make excellent use of organic waste. It is not only doing good to the environment but at the same time it is cheep, $1 per gallon, depending upon the cost of electricity and water. It will not be astonishing to see E-Fuel micro refineries be set up as the major fuel provider.

Green-Fuel: Biomass converted into bio-fuel!

A team of researchers at the University of Wisconsin have been working on bio-fuel and have now succeeded in converting the raw biomass cellulose into fuel. The process involves only two steps:

Step1: Conversion of biomass cellulose into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF).

Step 2: Convert HMF into 2,5 dimethylfuran (DMF), a biofuel with a 9% conversion rate.


Until now the researchers have made full use of corn stock cellulose and saw duct. The properties of DMF and gasoline are somewhat the same, they both are insoluble in water and have similar energy level. So it is used as an additive to gasoline. Even though such a breakthrough has been done but still it is unknown as to how much time is required to make it commercial and its cost.

Bio-Diesel: Fuel Your car with Waste Oil

Bio-Diesel is being made by recycling used oil from fast food restaurants. Oil used to fry French fries is used to make fuel. There are claimed to be three plants right now doing this job. One in Germany, one in Ville Ste Catherine Plant and the last one is Rothsay’s. Here animal and fat waste comes as gut-wrenchingly rancid smelled dark brown thick liquid and leaves the facility as an almost odorless clear yellow fuel.

  • Hi there, just wandered by. I have a Nevada 4g website. Amazing the amount of information on the web. Not what I was looking for, but very nice site. Have a good day.

    My husband and i ended up being quite peaceful that Edward could conclude his homework with the ideas he obtained from your web page. It’s not at all simplistic to just be giving for free tips and hints which often people might have been making money from. And now we see we have got the website owner to give thanks to for this. The specific illustrations you’ve made, the straightforward blog navigation, the friendships your site make it possible to promote – it is most fabulous, and it’s helping our son and the family believe that that situation is pleasurable, and that’s exceptionally fundamental. Thank you for the whole lot!
